Make Me Gorgeous! is the fabulous and incredible true story of Kenneth Marlowe, an oft-overlooked trailblazer in LGBTQ history. Described as one of mid-Century America’s gayest and most openly homosexual personalities, Marlowe took on many roles in life. Kenneth was private hairdresser to the stars, the madam of a notorious gay prostitution ring in Hollywood, an author, a hustler, a female impersonator, a private in the U.S. Army, a call boy, a Christian missionary, a mortuary cosmetologist, a newspaper columnist…and for the final decade of an incredibly lived life, Marlowe was a woman, having transitioned to become Kate.
